BROMSGROVE residents are being invited to show off their dancing skills at a tea dance.

The event will take place at Spadesbourne Suite in Burcot Lane, on Wednesday, September 24 from 2 to 4pm.

Councillor John Ruck, the civic head of Bromsgrove council, said: “The tea dance is lots of fun because it’s not all about dancing and keeping fit - it’s a great way to meet people, a real social event.

“You don’t even need to dance if you don’t feel like it. Just grab a cuppa and have a chat.”

There will also be a raffle and first-time tea dancers are welcome.

The dance is run by the district council in partnership with the Phoenix Dance Club.

This year marks the club's eighth anniversary.

Admission cost £3 and includes tea, coffee and biscuits.

The dances are held on last Wednesday of the month except December.
